So I came up with the idea that I should just close the windows all the time and open a small area which will let cold air come in and assemble my own air purifier. An air purifier usually cost around 25,000 pesos, there are smaller that cost around 5000 pesos but not very effective. By the way, the apartment I am currently renting has this feature that if all windows are closed, the place is almost copletely isolated from the outside which is very nice.
The secrets of air purification is usually the the device suck in air and let it pass through a channel of activated carbon. Activated carbon is a treated charcoal but it is still basically a charcoal. If it is activated, it just means, it just 20% more effective in absorbing odor and carbon dioxide/carbon monoxide. So I will just have to use ordinary charcoal to purify the air and remove common air pollutants.
But I need a proof of concept first to check if it is effective so I made a simple air purifier below:
And I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I must say, it is working, I can sleep without worrying that early in the morning, I will wake up with that usual terrible smell and the air smells like gasoline.
Tomorrow, I will start to make the air purifier device more presentable and I plan to use acrylic and my design in sketchup is finish which will be like below:
I am also thinking of buying activated carbon, some petshops sell activated carbon at a cheaper price so that the device will have some activated carbon content.
And lastly, I will be using the Big Carver CNC-5090 to cut the acrylic. Budget for this project is under 2500 pesos.
I was able to successfully finish my project. I used acryllic that I was not able to use for my other other projects, actually, these are excess from the CNC controller I assembled for the CNC 5090.
It turned to be a good and functioning design, here is the finish product:
And here's how it compares to my prototype:
